Adjectives and Adverbs in English Grammar

Introduction

Adjectives give us more information about a noun or pronoun. We can use them to describe colour (red), shape (square), origin (English), size (big), material (glass) or age (young). Some adjectives are derived from nouns and verbs while other adjectives can be graded to express comparison. Adverbs give us more information about verb, adjectives or other adverbs. Adverbs can express manner (slowly), time (yesterday), frequency (often) or degree (very).
